Restaurant description

The Foodworks Restaurant is the AA Rosette-awarded eatery of the 4-star Lancaster House Hotel, offering a fantastic blend of traditional and contemporary recipes. Leading on from the hotel lounge with its inviting open fires, the restaurant offers a chic dining setting that is children-friendly.

Head Chef Damien Ng showcases the very best in Lancashire produce on the Foodworks Restaurant menu, and adds inventive tweaks to traditional local recipes. The fish and chips are coated in Lancaster Brewery blonde beer batter, while a portobello mushroom stack has perfectly matured Lancashire cheese combined with broccoli pesto. There is also an extensive children's menu with numerous healthy options.

Desserts at The Foodworks Restaurant Lancaster are wonderfully decadent, and continue the local theme: ice cream comes from Wallings of Cockerham, there is homemade Lancashire ginger parkin with rich toffee sauce, and also a cheeseboard of local varieties to choose from, as well as a large wine list.

Combining style with reassuring tradition, The Foodworks Restaurant is adjacent to Lancaster University, and a 19-minute drive from Lancaster Rail Station.

    Excellent service!! booked Sunday lunch, initially were taken to the Sandeman bar but it was cold as doors open to outside, we moved into the dining room which was warmer but the temperature was still quite cool. The food was of very good quality, it was a really good meal, could not fault it, the Sirloin beef was very tasty as was everything with it

    We all tried something different, including three starters as a main course for our vegetarian. All the dishes were good and enjoyable. The service was great, and we will definitely return. The only slight negative is for the slightly more limited vegetarian choice, but in saying that the pick and mix starters as a main worked beautifully

    Food was delicious and came promptly. Took quite a while to have the order taken and for drinks to arrive, appeared to be understaffed.

    Our stay was great and I want to say all your staff is amazing! I want to say thanks to Josh and Brandon and other guys for being super professional and sweet to us! Our stay was two nights but we only went to restaurant for a dinner once simply because the food was tasty but not what we expected. My husband ordered a steak burger and let’s be honest there was no steak in the burger:) so we booked somewhere else. But breakfast was great and once again thank you to all your staff !!!!

    I’ve been to the Lancaster House Hotel a number of times over the years and its always been excellent. However Monday exceeded all expectations, especially as it was so busy. The staff were very attentive and the service excellent. I really enjoyed my halloumi burger was delicious, not too over cooked as some places I’ve been too often do.

    Polite staff who will always help, a couple of menu issues but the management accepted the errors and didn't try to hide and with every problem they tried to put it right. A few too many dishes going back to the kitchen though so don't know if it was the challenge of fewer staff because of furlough and bigger demand but our food was really good.

    The food overall was good. Dined there two nights. One issue with fajitas, they were more like wraps. Not very nice, didn’t eat them. Also had breakfast 3 mornings, on the 3rd morning waited half an hour, for our order to be taken. Toast burnt, didn’t bring our complete order, Asked for refund, which we received.
